People of all ages are expected to flock to events across Aberdeen this weekend as a major technology festival celebrates its silver anniversary.
TechFest turns 25 today and is marking the occasion with a weekend of activities and demonstrations at Robert Gordon University.
More than 30 workshops have been planned over the next two days featuring topics including subsea challenges, solubility and improving reaction times in video games.
In addition, a new ToddleFest event has been organised to show pre-schoolers how to make playdough, lava lamps and even rain clouds.
Overall the festival is aiming to introduce more people to the Stem subjects of science, technology, engineering and maths and encourage them to pursue a career in the disciplines.
TechFest managing director Sarah Chew said: “The Activity Weekend is a unique event in our calendar which begins our TechFest festival by offering an insight into the amazing world of Stem, and gives people a chance to speak to presenters about their jobs, research and experiences using these vital skills.
“This year promises to be extra special as we continue our anniversary celebrations with additional funding from BP and Shell paying for a spectacular performance from London Science Museum, which promises to captivate the audience.
“There’s also lots of other fun and engaging activities to keep everyone entertained, regardless of their Stem knowledge and background.
“We can’t wait to join thousands of people from across the north-east at this brilliant event next weekend.”
